Jean Liébault (1535 – 21 June 1596) was a doctor and agronomist, born in Dijon.

He married Nicole Estienne, who published several writings about marriage, in which she condemned domestic violence and a large age difference between spouses.[1] His father-in-law was Charles Estienne who authored the Praedieum rusticum. Liébault substantially altered and extended Estienne's book, resulting in a French text La Maison Rustique (translated into English by Richard Surflet "The Countrey Farme"). He translated or authored the medical textbook Trois Livres appartenans aux infirmitez et maladies des femmes (Lyons, 1597).
